During Game 1 of the NBA Finals, LeBron James left the game late in the fourth quarter due to severe cramps. With the air-conditioning system in San Antonio broken, the temperature inside the AT&T Center was borderline unbearable. Although he didn’t directly reference James or his cramps, Kobe Bryant took advantage of the situation to back his sponsor, BODYARMOR.

In response to Thursday night’s events, Bryant took to his Instagram and promoted the drink he invested in. Instead of being forced to drink whatever the league requires, Bryant believes players should be able to use whatever they wish. BODYARMOR prides itself as being the athlete’s drink and boasts an All-Star lineup of endorsers across multiple sports.

While Bryant continues to prepare himself for life after basketball through his business investments, the Lakers continue to figure out how they want to build the team for Bryant’s final years and the period after his retirement. With the team struggling in recent years, the Miami Heat have overtaken the Lakers as the NBA’s most popular team among fans according to an ESPN poll.

    I wonder if Kobe put that up as and opportunity to promote his sponsor or if his sponsor actually made him or had his agent make him put up the post. It’s all marketing and it’s possibly what happened or Kobe just knows how to make his sponsors happy with spontaneous promoting.
    As for Lebron getting cramps, yes the fact that the AC broke down is an unfortunate situation that affected all the players, but he has had cramps before as well in other games where the AC wasn’t the reason. He’s definitely a great player with a lot of talent, but I think maybe his body isn’t being taken care of properly and it broke down because of conditioning issues (this is all hypothetical). maybe he should just eat a banana before games from now on and lessen the risk of his body cramping up.

      good point (about LeBron). He is a very lean, and very big man, built more for football, where there are longer breaks in the action, to hydrate, rather than basketball, in which he runs ‘continuously’ for many minutes at a time, and for 2 1/2 hours real-time.

    Some have good athleticism but Lavine from the FT line is something else while wearing his Lakers warmups. IMO, Lavine will be drafted by the 10th selection.
